Trouble deleting a "recent search"

    I have a H20 receiver and cannot solve this problem.

    For some strange reason (I don't remember doing this) this receiver is displaying something that I can't figure out how to "delete".

    Under the "search for shows", "recent seaches" I have not a single show, but a channel result showing ( "A&E HD 265")

    How do I delete this search. The "edit, delete, done" column that usually shows up to the left of a selected search is not showing.

    Yikes...this is driving me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.

    The search pattern you shared is a KEYWORD search that someone in your house was playing with. As David suggested, simply highlight it on the Recent Searches screen and press RED and that should delete it for you.

    I'm not familiar with an "edit, delete, done" column for searches, but I do not have an H20, only HR2x, so there may be minor differences in the interface.

    Run the search and then press MENU. See if you get the delete option on the left side of your screen.

    Thanks for your shared love for Sherman and Peabody....but your idea didn't work either.

    Maybe I need the "Wayback Machine" :D
